WWE didn’t take long to pair up Seth Rollins and Becky Lynch into their storylines after it was revealed the two were dating in real life.
Following Extreme Rules, however, it appears that WWE may not be sending the two of them in different directions.
Speaking with Newsweek, Seth Rollins addressed their storyline pairing, claiming that they only came together on TV because of Baron Corbin.
“The stories aligned only because of Baron Corbin aligned them,” Rollins said. “It was circumstantial. It wasn’t like Becky and I thought “hey, we’re dating now, let’s be on TV together and have matches together.” So now we’re back being supportive boyfriend and girlfriend for each other.
I’m looking forward to her match with Natalya at SummerSlam, and, hopefully, she’s looking forward to me beating Brock Lesnar and winning back the Universal title.”
Seth Rollins lost the WWE Universal Championship to Brock Lesnar after Lesnar cashed in his Money In The Bank briefcase at Extreme Rules. The cash in took place after Rollins and Lynch defeated Baron Corbin and Lacey Evans.
He would subsequently earn the right to face Lesnar at SummerSlam after winning a Battle Royal on this past week’s episode of Monday Night RAW.
